Pear Friands

Ok, so I would probably categorise these as a party food, but they were also absolutely delicious, rich in good fats, and full of fibre from the whole pears and almonds.

Pear Friands
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup SR flour
100g canola margarine
2 very ripe pears, cored and pureed fresh with skin
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g icing sugar
3 egg whites

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and lightly grease friand tin or prepare cupcake papers
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff
  3. Mix all other ingredients together in a large bowl
  4. Add a little of the egg white mix to the large bowl and stir to combine well
  5. Add remaining egg white and fold in very gently with a metal spoon
  6. Spoon into tin or papers
  7. Bake at 200 degrees for about 25 min
